New West police blitz distracted drivers
The New Westminster police department says its officers will be out in "full force" this weekend handing out tickets to drivers who are talking or texting on their mobile devices while driving.
The escalated enforcement is part of a month-long partnership with ICBC to raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving.
"Our hope is to educate people so that they put down their cell phones and focus on driving," said chief constable Dave Jones.
